The Ultimate Dog Drying Coat provides our greatest coverage and as well as an underbelly strap, it also a microfibre lined polo neck and a back shaping which encloses round the rear of the dog for the ultimate coverage. The back shaping fastens together with a small plastic buckle which can be undone if required. The Ultimate Dog Drying Coat slips over your dog's head, and has a microfibre towel lined underbelly strap which goes between your dog's front legs and then wraps and fastens around the dog's waist for extra drying and warmth.

Freckles Drying Coats are fantastic for warming and drying you dog. They are great for putting on your dog after a walk in the rain, a swim in the sea or after a bath. The Drying Coats fit snug on your dog for maximum contact with the fur ensuring that moisture is absorbed quickly.

The Drying Coats are made with a polar fleece outer and a lined with high quality black microfibre towelling made in Italy.  Microfibre towelling is faster drying and has much greater absorption properties than standard towelling so your dog dries in extra quick time! The coat fits snug on your dog allowing the microfibre to make direct contact with the fur and so ensuring that any moisture is absorbed quickly.

As the water is absorbed by the microfibre towelling, and with the aid of the fleece outer layer, your dog will begin to warm up. As your dog warms up the water absorbed by the towelling will evaporate away and so if the coat is left on long enough the result is a dry dog and a dry coat. The coat drys the dog and the dog drys the coat!

Why Microfibre Towelling?

Microfibre towelling is much more absorbant than cotton towelling which most other drying coats are made of. In fact microfibre towelling absorbs up to 8 times more water than standard cotton towelling which means that your dog dries much quicker.

Microfibre is made from fibres which are finer than 1/100 of a human hair. The wedge shaped cross section threads have more than 40 times surface area compared to normal towelling fibres and so these can hold more water and also trap dust and dirt more effectively than traditional towelling. Microfibre also does not pull or snag and so retains it's quality longer than cotton towels.

Personalise your Drying Coat

Add an individual touch to your Freckles Drying Coat by embroidering your dog's name onto it for just £9.00. Enter a maximum of 9 letters per line (max 2 lines of text) and you can choose from 4 different thread colours to complement the fleece outer. (Embroidery may not be as visible on patterned fabrics.) 

Please note that personalised coats cannot be returned so please ensure that you order the correct size for your dog and we would recommend that you always measure your dog.

Delighted with the purchase!

Beautifully made coat, dried my spaniel from soaking wet straight out of the river state to just damp in less than an hour whilst keeping her comfortably warm. Fits very well, would happily purchase again in all the colours!

Returning buyer

Fabulous product. Very well made & cuts down on the soggy dog towels. Our Cocker Spaniel is a typical water baby & these coats help so much. Have purchased another for our Westie pup who is following in our Cockers footsteps. Less shaking of wet dog in cars & house. Cannot recommend this product enough.

Best drying coat!

Bought this coat for my labradoodle Chaos as she had just started hydrotherapy. Not only does it do the job of drying her and keeping her warm, her physio loves it. You put the dog's head through the neck piece and then the rest goes under the belly and wraps round their girth. No lifting arthritic paws or trying to manhandle sore joints through holes. There's also a handy clip which goes under the tail which stops it sliding on her back and keeps it in place. We've washed it a few times (as per instructions) and it's kept it's waterproofness and washed well. We've had it for about 3-4 months now and it functions as new. Really helpful and personal service. Would recommend!


Bought a green ultimate coat for our Chinese crested powder puff, as once wet gets extremely cold very fast. Great for after wet walks, and also on cold days.

Brilliant coats

Bought 2 of these coats for my Springer & cocker, fit perfect and don’t move around and my dogs can’t get them off Like they did from another brand. Also Angie was very helpful with the sizing for them. Very friendly and responsive to messages and phone calls .... I am hopefully going to try the cooling coats too in the near future. Thank you.
